    Hi, we’re looking to stay onsite for 5 nights and then offsite for an additional 10. Are we only able to access the earlier fast pass booking for the fist 5 days, or the entire trip? Thanks

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jeremy!

    Wow! 15 days visiting Walt Disney World is truly magical--what an excellent plan!

    Utilizing the FastPass+ service is an even better way to maximize the magic throughout your stay; I am so glad that you asked about it. One of the perks of staying at a select Walt Disney World Resort hotel is that you'll be able to make those FastPass+ reservations 60 days prior to your arrival for the length of your stay in that resort. As such, you'll be able to make all of those plans for the entire 5 nights of that particular resort stay once that 60 day window opens. For the later portion of your vacation, you'll be able to make those FastPass+ plans for those days as each 30 day window opens.

    When you link Theme Park Tickets to your My Disney Experience account, the system recognizes that you have both active tickets and a resort hotel reservation; this will allow you to make those plans for the length of that particular stay. When you click on "Get FastPass+", you'll eventually get to a calendar with dates that are either grey or blue. Once you are within that 60 day window, the dates of that resort stay will be blue, meaning that you are able to make FastPass+ plans for those dates. For the off-property portion of your trip, each one of the remaining days will be blue in your My Disney Experience account at each 30 day mark. 

    Have a wonderful time planning your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth, Jeremy! Be sure to send us more questions as you think of them, too. We love to help!
